They didn't say anything about Tomb Raider. But Crystal will be at GDC. They will announce a new IP? Isn't that exciting too? I am excited in that new IP more than Half Life 3 announcement. God and Karl knows what it is.

They will be recruiting for the new IP. Also, there's no word on Half Life 3 being at GDC.

It wouldn't be hard to make a post about it on my thread- the reason I created it in the first place was to discuss it, not start a competition.

Yes they will be recruiting. I don't know how they do it but I was thinking they might announce the game while recruiting. No idea. And I was talking about future announcement of Half Life 3. Whether it is announced in 2012 or in 2020.

Probably they will. I want someone to bash that door. Only if they should invite multiplayer.it.

Sorry didn't see your thread at first place. I was working for almost an hour to put info in this thread. You can ask mod to close this thread if you want. No problem from me.
